Collaboration from Comfort Within Noise & Ian Heygreen.
We welcome Comfort Within Noise to our netlabel.
CWN (Comfort Within Noise) is one guy, who is known for incorporating his guitar, and bass playing styles (influenced by Blues/Psychedelic/Prog-rock/Metal/Funk/Jazz) styles into, trip-hop - hip-hop, Jungle - Glitch, Glitch-Dub - Trip-Dub. Most of his music is instrumental pieces unless he is working on a collaboration with are vocal artist. CWN feels its best to give the listener a chance to let their imagination take them on its own journey with his multi spectral instrumentals rather than to guide you through the journey with lyrics....
Ian Haygreen is a classically trained pianist.
In 2014 he started making electronic music in different genres.
Back in the almost mythical era that it is known as the 1970s and early 1980s I was taught classical piano and composition when I was terribly young. Then in the 80s the dread teenage years hit and other things suddenly became more important and music was all but dropped for a few years, although I did keep my hand in doing occasional scores for local choral groups and the odd string quartet now and again.
Then a few short years ago I discovered the wonders of DAW systems and the ability of creating my own electronic music from the comfort of my own sofa without the pesky need for £1000s worth of equipment. And I haven't looked back since.
The first album I bought was Jean-Michel Jarre's Oxygene in 1977. I'd heard it played on the radio and had never heard anything like that before on popular radio. I was entranced. So armed with pocket-money I started hunting down interesting things to listen to. Since most of the records I discovered weren't played on the radio it was all trial and error. The next album I purchased was Tangerine Dream's Rubycon, based solely on the album cover and description. I was hooked. From there I discovered the delights of Krautrock, prog rock, and artists like Conrad Schnitzler, Klaus Schulze, Vangelis, Popol Vuh, Logic System, YMO, Art of Noise, and so on.
I was already familiar with with Delia Derbyshire (Doctor Who theme), Daphne Oram (BBC Radiophonic Workshop founder), Morton Subotnick (film soundtracks), Stockhausen and the like and I still retain a huge fondness for those early 50s and 60s electronic experimentation.
